Tomato plants are really just getting started, my deck herbs this year consist of Italian Parsley, Sage, Sweet Basil, Lemon Thyme, Creeping Thyme, Greek Oregano, and the woody Rosemary. I used just a little sage on my grilled boneless pork ribs last night, along with fresh ground pepper and nothing else. Oh, the flavour of the pork just radiated through, with the slightest of sage accent. I also grilled chicken for our salad and this time i marinated the two large boneless breasts in equal parts of balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil with a little fresh garlic minced up in there. Direct heat for the breasts and indirect for the pork - we shared a wonderful meal last night after a Tiger victory.
To-day LORD we pray for those who are grieving, mourning, and missing loved ones recently taken. We pray for the candidates on the upcoming Lutheran Via de Cristo of Central Michigan weekend #80 - that You would prepare their hearts even now for what You will be working in them during and after those three days, and that You would comfort and guide their loved ones in their absence. We pray for all those traveling, that You would protect them. We pray for those who don't yet know You - that they would respond to Your call, drop their nets, and follow Jesus
You alone LORD are worth of our praise, You alone are full of majesty and glory forever and ever amen!
